FOTD: Adam Lippes AW 2009 Inspired Purple and Teal Eye Makeup Look

I really liked the combination of violet, blue, teal and pink that was spotted at the Adam Lippes A&W 2009 show at New York Fashion Week. These colors are great for a spring look and you can easily do a toned down version of it for everyday wear.


What I Used

* Estee Lauder Nutritious Vita-Mineral Makeup SPF10 in Intensity 2.0
* MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC30
* Anastasia Highlighting Eyebrow Kit to fill in eyebrows
* MAC Prep + Prime Eye in Light as a base
* MAC Softwash Grey Pigment on entire eyelid
* MAC Bell Blue Bottom Pigment lightly on outer corner
* MAC Teal Pigment on lower eye
* Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in Black along upper lash line
* Ipum Strip False Lashes on top
* L’oreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara in Black on lower lashes
* MAC Mineralize Blush in Pleasantry high on the cheekbones
* Stila All Over Shimmer Power in #1 to highlight
* MAC Myth Lipstick

  1. you always have such great looks! i’d comment more (sorry i seem like a stalker xP) but your page just takes so long to load! 😐 i LOVE your top though 😀

  2. I’m not too fond of this look actually. The eyebrows are a bit too unnatural for my liking and the turquoise colour under your eyes are overpowering them as opposed to enhancing them.

  3. i love this look.
    thank god for ur blog cuz i just started working at a place where i must wear makeup…and im not so creative.

    I use u as a reference:)

  4. Hi Phyllis,

    Your color coordination is amazing! The red shirt really compliments the nude lip look you have… Can you refer to where I can get the shirt you are wearing in this picture? Thanks Phyllis.

  5. hi phyllis,
